Yay! Our favourite food photography competition has opened for entries to the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2022 award.
David Loftus, Chair of Judges, said, ‘during my years as a judge, then as Chairman of the Judges, I’ve watched the Awards grow into one of the most important and much-loved photographic competitions in the world. Every year, more amateurs and professionals, young and old, compete against each other anonymously, making it truly universal and democratic, anyone with a talent can win.’
There are over 25 categories in the Awards, acknowledging the huge diversity of ways in which food affects us. And in an exciting development, in 2022, the Regional Awards are introduced to celebrate winners from around the world.
Also, the 2022 winner of The Claire Aho Award for Women Photographers, which was launched last year in memory of Finland’s greatest woman photographer, will be treated to an exclusive trip to Finland courtesy of VisitFinland.
This year’s global judging panel, chaired by legendary food photographer, David Loftus, includes Fiona Shields, Head of Photography, Guardian News & Media, NA Risong, Art director and curator of Inter Art Center Gallery, Beijing, Francis Hodgson, Professor, Culture of Photography, Phillip Prodger, Executive Director, Curatorial Exhibitions, LA and former Head of Photographs, National Portrait Gallery, London, Rein Skullerud, Head of Photo Unit, World Food Programme and our own Angela Nicholson.
